I have been doing some book-keeping and it appears that quite a few sponsoring members’ payments have either been cancelled or suspended due to non-payment but they maintained their sponsoring privileges.
I have corrected this today.
If however you believe that your account has been downgraded incorrectly, and apologies if it has, please send me an e-mail with your PayPal subscription ID and I will correct any errors.29/09/2016 at 10:39 #4951511/10/2016 at 13:57 #5033030/10/2016 at 11:31 #5146518/11/2016 at 12:36 #5263210/02/2017 at 18:05 #5774020/05/2017 at 09:43 #62314
How busy is TWW?
Here are some rough stats about it:
TWW gets about 3300 unique visitors a month.
TWW gets about 2200 visits per day, this is about 66,000 visits per month.
Looking at the period specific forums (so not things like the terrain or general forum) we have about 3200 historical topics and about 1100 fantasy/sci-fi making the ratio of historical vs non historical roughly 3:1
Plus about 700 general topics.
Thank you very much to everyone that is part of this community, and I hope to see us grow bigger and better together.

I am trialling a feature where you can upload images directly to the site without the need for third party hosting.
It is a trial for now, I hope to keep it around forever but I will need to monitor stuff, and things.
For now though it is live.
To do it, click the image icon:
Then when that opens a pop up click the little folder to search your device for an image:
Upload and go!
PS: Try to keep the images small in file size or the server will reject them, less than 1mb please, around 300kb should be good enough though if you can do that.16/06/2017 at 10:16 #6491723/09/2017 at 18:52 #7222723/11/2017 at 20:10 #7682625/11/2017 at 11:04 #7693212/12/2017 at 16:18 #7867104/02/2018 at 16:59 #83541
We have been suffering a bit of spam recently.
I increased the aggressiveness of the spam filter for 24 hours and whilst it blocked the spam during that period, it also blocked some genuine topic replies.
So for now I have turned it back down as I would rather have spam that can be deleted later, then genuine conversation delayed until approved.
I will have a tinker with the registration process to see if that can help.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.06/02/2018 at 10:38 #8372110/02/2018 at 01:26 #8414716/02/2018 at 10:31 #8464918/04/2018 at 11:11 #8890819/04/2018 at 20:55 #89057
I have been tinkering with the spam settings in the forums as a few topics/replies have been caught by the filter and not published.
In such instances there is a message that says it can not be created at this time.
The thing is, it never will be unless I change the spam settings.
So, instead the post will now be sent for moderation rather than simply not allowed.
If you post a topic/reply and it seems to disappear into the ether but the topic shows that you updated it a few seconds ago, the post is in my queue.
I will get onto it.
If you are in a mega rush for this to be approved, drop me an e-mail.25/05/2018 at 18:52 #91994
I have added an SSL certificate to TWW, so you should now see a nice little green padlock when viewing the site (or the non Chrome browser equivalent to the padlock)
In real terms nothing has changed at the back end, but with some websites and browsers urging people to stay away from ‘unsecure’ sites, it seemed prudent.02/06/2018 at 18:12 #9240214/06/2018 at 10:17 #9325123/07/2018 at 09:39 #95488
A while back I upgraded TWW from http to https.
There are plenty of articles online about the advantages of a secure site over a non-secure one, so I won’t blather on about it here.
(Please be aware though, that all payments are done via the PayPal site, which has always been secure.)
The ‘downside’ it has on TWW, is that it will not display non-secure content.
The main instances of this are images hosted externally.
If you have images on TWW that are from a third party site that is not https, then they will not be visible.
To get around this the images will need to be moved to a secure site, any of the major image hosting sites are https, as is TWW, so you can upload the images directly here if you wish.
Sorry that this may have caused a slight issue for a few members who link to images from non-secure sites.25/07/2018 at 09:46 #9560410/08/2018 at 17:46 #96641
It was brought to my attention a while back that some of the view stats on the news pages seemed a bit off.
I thought I had it sorted, but had not. My bad.
What was happening was that the count was lower than it should have been, it was only showing views from logged in users.
I have installed a new plug-in and removed the previous one.
The upside is that the count should now be reflective of actual views, the down side is that it has made all counts revert to 0 as the plugin was not installed when these items were published.
I have the data for the old ones and have been manually (yay) updating news items, however I will only be doing the most recent ones, maybe the last 100 or so.
If you wish a specific news item to be updated, please do let me know.08/01/2019 at 16:42 #10717125/02/2019 at 09:35 #10981129/03/2019 at 09:19 #11157309/07/2019 at 16:23 #11769704/09/2019 at 08:50 #12128509/09/2019 at 14:31 #12170125/09/2019 at 09:41 #123181
I am away starting the 30th of September and I will return on the 4th of October.
Please still send in news items and banners and all that jazz, but be aware I will only be publishing news once per day whilst away, most likely the evening, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see anything until later in the day.14/10/2019 at 14:08 #12441903/11/2019 at 10:40 #12578906/11/2019 at 18:37 #12603425/01/2020 at 15:50 #130281
After many years of faithful service, the software plugin that was the event calendar went a bit iffy and started acting odd.
I have had to replace it.
Hopefully the new one serves you as well, it has less information, but has everything that you should need.
More importantly it hopefully wont go all HAL on me…
Just spent several hours adding 35 events, more to follow over the next few days.03/02/2020 at 15:04 #130899
